Music To Inspire You
Welcome To
Music Moves Me!
This Week’s Theme is Caribbean Music!

My song choice for this week is Bob Marley’s Redemption Song – a song considered one of Marley’s greatest works. Unlike most of his previous recordings, Redemption Song is purely an acoustic work, and it is one of his final songs, written around the time of the cancer diagnosis that took his life.

Redemption Song is considered the most influential recording in Jamaican music history – on of the Top Political Songs of all times – and is #66 on Rolling Stone’s 2004 list of 500 Greatest Songs Of All Times.

Bob Marley – Redemption Song

In 2013, Jamaican recording artist Tessanne Chin won Season 5 of The Voice, and one of the performances that helped her clinch the title was her heartfelt rendition of Marley’s classic.

Tessanne Chin – Redemption Song

I’ve shared both versions for your listening pleasure. Do you have a favorite – or do you like them both?

Enjoy the music and have a wonderful week!

Inspire Me Monday

I like the idea of Inspiration Monday.
Monday’s often get the short end of the stick
But they are fraught with potential!

    What an excellent song to inspire me to create. I have never heard it before but it has an amazing message. Thank you so much. I have spent the past couple hours writing a blog post that was inspired by your blog party. Again, thank you. I will be adding it first thing in the morning after it is complete.

      I love both versions!

      I thought I was going original Bob at first but the more I heard Tessanne’s version, the more it grew on me and now I am in love with it –
      it just took me awhile to get used to hearing a different interpretation!

      I played both songs all night while writing my post!

    Wonderful choices here and I love that you have both. Me? I love them both… I’m so late… I’m very sorry, but I was very busy yesterday and then I just got too tired. Sometimes it gets the better of me and the pain just overruns me and I have to rest without a choice. I get injections next week and I can hardly wait. Pain free until maybe 8 to 10 months woo hoo.. need prayers that all goes well if you don’t mind. I go on the 11th. Thank you. God bless and have a great night.
